Continuity mistake: In an early scene at Broderick Crawford's dinner table, his wife comes in to pour a cup of coffee. Half the coffee she pours ends up in the cup, the other half she spills on her hand and the table, yet no one seems to notice.
Trivia: A sign for "US 56" appears in the movie "All the King's Men" on the road where the governor's son crashes his car. (The fictitious state is not identified.) The movie was released in 1949, eight years before the road number was assigned. Interestingly enough, the real US 56 runs through Kansas and Oklahoma and Governor Stark's birthplace was "Kanoma" (Kansas + Oklahoma).
Sadie Burke: How'd you get him here? He was out stiff.
Jack Burden: A hair of the dog that bit him.

Willie Stark: Here it is, you hicks! Nail up anybody who stands in your way! Nail up Joe Harrison! Nail up McMurphy! And if they don't deliver, give me the hammer, and I'll do it myself.
Jack Burden: Anne, Burden's Landing is a place on the Moon. It isn't real. It doesn't exist. It's me pretending to live on what I earn. It's my mother trying to keep herself young and drinking herself old. It's you and Adam living in this house as though your father were still alive. It's an old man like the judge dreaming of the past.
